  1. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    zero defects, excellent
    • Nose
      Extremely fruity, but more sherry than other tomatos 76
    • Taste
      equal to the nose
    • Finish
      rather long

  2. goran scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    From Whiskyfun:

    Tomatin 34 yo 1976/2010 (51%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams, sherry butt)  Colour: full gold. Nose: it’s one of these fresh and fruity old Tomatins! Not as much a fruitbomb as some 1960s distillation but still, it’s very fruity. Passion fruits, guavas, mangos, green bananas, kiwis, then more herbal tones (verbena, spearmint, dill, fennel) and then some soft spicy touches, caraway and juniper berries among others. And some funny and unexpected hints of oysters. Am I dreaming? With water: same, not much changes. Mouth (neat): tons of jams, hectolitres of fruit syrups (and fresh fruit juices) and myriads of tiny spicy notes. Quality is very high here as there’s not one single sign of overageing. We’re somewhere between a 1972 Clynelish and a 1981 Lochside. Okay, okay, tangerines, passion fruits, mangos, lemons, vanilla, coconut (just a little…), cinnamon… With water: again, same despite an oakiness that’s just a tiny-wee tad louder (for the record). Finish: medium long, very fruity, very clean, tropical… Comments: a textbook old Tomatin, exactly the style that pushed the distillery to the front of the stage within maniacal circles. It’s also a bit of a miracle as, according to my experience, the big yet delicate fruitiness tends to get killed as soon as there’s a little too much oak in these old Tomatins. Which isn’t the case here, obviously.SGP:751 - 92 points.

  3. Dede scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    There we talk. Nice basket of exotic fruits, then mandarin, peach, apricot, pink grapefruit, honey, vanilla. In the blind I might have bet on a bourbon cask. On the palate it's perfect, the exoticism is superb, the spices, cinnamon in the head, bring the right amount of wood to structure the whole. Too bad the final is not longer !!

  4. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A very good whisky, quite complex while being quite fine too.
    • Nose
      A very fine and very delicate nose on yellow fruits and mandarin, a little wax, a pinch of vanilla. Sherry is not invasive.
      It smells great, must say what is.
    • Taste
      A lot of pepper, a minty note. Sweet marmalade fruit .; and a little vanilla.
    • Finish
      The finish is quite long, again on white pepper. The wood is a little felt here, without being imposing so far. A little mint; and still some fruits.

  5. ValeronDeportivo scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A great Tomatin, there are few whiskies as fruity. A rare treat indeed that is sadly almost gone.
    • Nose
      Woody and fruity. First come cinnamon and ripe kiwis, a very sweet smell. After that come soft vanilla, papaya, and mandarins.
      A very busy and complex nose!
    • Taste
      Sweet arrival with a slightly wood-bitter development. Thick and chewy, but not at all oily - rather drying with small tanins.
      The taste is more dominated by the wood, resembles some old burbons or ryes, with a citrucy and tropical fruit freshness to balance it a little.
       
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, and more similar to the nose with the fruits comming back - mostly with dried papayas and figs.
      Almost no bitterness in the finish, which makes it a dram from which you always want to take another sip.

  6. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 94 points Super Administrator

    Note sure why I like this so much but the woodines is just so tasty I`m not sure if I`ve ever tasted such a whisky before. It reminds me of some chinese dishes prepared with dried chili`s and coriander. I call this whisky `1000 dishes in a Dram.`

  7. Jeep51 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Slightly floral, a little minty and peppery side, and little vanilla and beeswax and then a lot of fruit (apricots, clementines, mangos) in a nice melted set! Very nice nose. Gentle despite more than 50 °. With a few drops of water, we find the same fruits with a little lemon and peaches. Wow
    • Taste
      Very spicy, always the same pepper-mint pair, wax, then we return to the exotic fruits (mangoes) and apricot jam. It is very greedy.
    • Finish
      Long enough on the fruit and extinguished on the beeswax!

  8. Lafroy scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A lot of fruity sweetness, tropical fruit notes, currants, gooseberry, kiwi, hints of mint, some menthol notes, herbs, fern, spices, hints of white pepper, honey, dryness, and a flower store in the middle of hot summer.
    • Taste
      It starts with menthols and honey sweetness, then it goes to lemon peel, some bitterness, immature kiwi, dryness, a variety of spices, white pepper, Provence herbs, and cinnamon. Metallic aftertaste. Eventually quite warming.
    • Finish
      Medium long, warming with hints of cinnamon and herbs, fruit sweetness notes, hints of bitterness, dryness and massive fruit attack.

  9. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    A Tomatin that's well-aged while maintaining its juicy fruitiness. Recommended.
    • Nose
      Very smooth and feminine, with an intense fruit basket. Tangerines, white peach. Tropical fruits like guava and mango. Some apricot marmalade. Pink grapefruit. A hint of vanilla. Lots of honey. Lovely whiffs of mint as well. Fruity but not too sweet as it also shows a warm herbal side. Excellent.
    • Taste
      Starts spicy (a little pepper), which made me expect a fair amount of oak, but it doesn't break through. After a few seconds it goes back to fruit candy, sweet grapefruit, vanilla, oranges, marmalade, a little banana... Then some fresh herbs and cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium length, a tad more woody dryness but still very fruity and warm.

  10. gunnie76 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    I find the Oat mint Tomatin of the Nectar a little better. More ripe fruit in the nose, and specially in taste. I is 9 years older so that can excplain it.
    But still a fantastic Tomatin
